    Advice on screw thread grease

    I have shot browning/Miroku guns all or most of my shooting life (60 + years). I have never had the need to remove the ejectors on any of them. I simply use an old toothbrush, pipe cleaners and cotton wool buds to clean the ejectors in situ. I do use the Lucas red gun oil on them and find that it stays where it is put, but I only use the bare minimum of oil. Constant removal of the screws that hold the ejectors in eventually leads to them being damaged or worn. IF they ever need to come out, I will leave it to a Gunsmith to deal with, BUT like the alleged troublesome firing pins, I have NEVER had the need to repair any of them. To be honest, I would sooner have a non-ejector on a clay gun anyway. I place my right hand over the breech as I open the gun and then place the fired cases into the bin.

    Advice on screw thread grease

    So for me I load the ejector springs with light grease and clean them maybe a couple times a year when shooting a lot. But nothing I have is held in with screws so actually I could do it every time I shoot and not really suffer. On the screw thread stuff I'd use a teflon loaded lube of some kind or, what is sold here as NeverSeize, a MoS2 lube for anything. JMO of course

    Advice on screw thread grease

    Hi, I have removed the ejectors on my Browning for the first time to clean. One ejector retaining screw was very tight, what advice can members offer on a thread lubricant to ensure screw will not seize up In the future but also not work loose? Also how often (time or number of cartridges) do members remove the ejectors? Thanks for any advice

    Beretta firing pin damage

    Dry firing can damage the pins "sleeve" or "collar" - which stops them internally against the back of the breech when fired - but it rarely happens in practice. I'm not sure of the exact term. If this happens the pin will look out of shape and (possibly) extend out a little further - not that I have seen one. Most of us have dry fired a few times in error and seen no damage. If it shoots it will be Ok. If it doesn't fire, get it looked at without messing yourself.

    Beretta firing pin damage

    Never had a problem with firing pins on either my Silver Pigeon or by DT10 and they both got a lot of use. Locking bar on the DT10 wore out and needed replacing but the firing pins were fine.

    Not sure my mate with a 686 and dt10 both with issues would agree with you on that. 😄

    Love my M2, rugged slim & solid, zero maintenance required, doesn’t go boing like a 400, no ports to block, negligible recoil (comfortech). Brilliant gun.

    All I would add is PLEASE GO OUTSIDE FIRST, though !

    What Will said. Very little ever goes wrong with Berettas and the firing pins are as good as the best around. A few dry pulls won't bother them at all.

    I concur. If you are really in doubt, put in an actual cartridge and pull the trigger. If it goes bang your firing pin is still in good nick. Just to eradicate further doubt (if step 1 above doesn't reassure you) see the diagram linked below - part 41 is the firing pin. It's conical for a reason. https://www.brownells.co.uk/Schematics/Beretta/Shotguns/Beretta-686-Silver-Pigeon-Competition-Schematic#41

    You haven’t. Really. It’s a myth..

    Beretta firing pin damage

    I inadvertently pulled the trigger on my Beretta Silver Pigeon without a cartridge in the breech. How can I tell if I have damaged the firing pin? Thanks for any advice

    I have a Franchi Affinity which is very similar. Just has the spring around the forend and not in the stock. As you say the M2 is a lovely gun to shoot as is the Affinity. I use mine mainly on wet days or just for a change. Keep those videos coming, really good. I used to have a Remmy 1187 and your previous video almost made me hanker after another one...but so far I have resisted.

    Cartridge pockets

    I even keep a couple of 32 gram 7's in the inside left shoulder pocket, the one designed to put them orrible gel pad things in ! 🙄

    Cartridge pockets

    This is why I never wear gloves. More fingers free for counting broken clays.I wonder if that’s why certain competitors wear sandals? 🤔

    Cartridge pockets

    and for different 1st/2nd barrel loads for some other games. Works for me at any rate. I usually put 5 of whatever is on the left side in the smaller for the two pockets so I don't have to count targets and can just shoot until that five are gone since I found that counting to 5 can sometimes be a problem for the aging brain.

    Cartridge pockets

    Other things than cartridges mostly, so I don't have to find tidbits under whatever of amount of shells. I think my in my vest I can just about cram 75 shells divided between the left and right pockets. A break every fifty or so rounds doesn't isn't usually unwelcome, but if you really want to carry hundreds extra about, try a small cartridge bag. Alternatively you could wear an apron-style bag-belt (Decathlon sells a decent one) in addition to your vest so you'd have four more pockets to stuff.

    Cartridge pockets

    It’s to put different shot size cartridges in for the odd stand that might benefit from a 7 for an edge on rangy rabbit.

    Cartridge pockets

    I always thought its for putting your spent cartridges in if reloading or no bins handy, that's what I use mine for

    Cartridge pockets

    I have just received a shooting vest and have a question. It has double pockets on each side, I can get 25 cartridges in one pocket but not 50 in both. Why double pockets and what do members use each for. I have noticed lots of competition shooters seem to have this type of vest, am I missing something?

    you should have a fair idea after trying a 1000

    Gamebore DTL elite

    Just checked out the Facebook page, didn't realize they were such a popular cartridge with the trap lads and ladies,I normally use fiocchi fblack 28gr 7.5 they give great kills but I do find them a bit pucky recoil wise if I'm honest, going to get a 1000 of these and give them a go when things are back to normal.

    You were sponsored by your mum. But that’s fine. Carry on. 😀

    I used them for quite a while for Sporting before I switched to Hull. Very good on the shoulder, got good kills at all distances.
